extra rich vegan moisturizing lotion
This next item isn't as much new as it is something that I would now like to share more widely – a lotion that was originally developed for someone truly lovely who shared information with me about the very uncomfortable side-effects of chemotherapy treatments. She looked into some of the lotions recommended by doctors to soothe her skin, but was unhappy to see the number of petrochemicals, drying alcohols, and artificial preservatives they contained. I was prompted to do further research into the topic and learned that squalene was a particularly popular ingredient for rapidly restoring moisture to skin. However, I was bothered to see most commercial sources were animal-based (shark liver) despite it being readily available in plant forms, including argan and olive oil. And so, these oils combined with the added benefits of calendula, are featured in this extra rich moisturizing lotion, which is ultimately helpful for anyone experiencing extreme dryness, whether health and/or climate related.
This product is currently available in 118 ml / 4 oz and 235 / 8 oz bottles because I will be making each bottle to to order, rather than as part of a batch as I do for products that are ordered daily such as hand/body lotion and facial moisturizer.
Ingredients: aqua (water), argania spinosa (argan) kernel oil, olea europaea (olive) oil, calendula officinalis (calendula) oil, aloe barbadensis (aloe) leaf gel, exthxylated sorbitan ester (vegetable based emulsifying wax), vegetable glycerine,
tocopherol (vitamin e - soy)
This product is handcrafted without the use of artificial preservatives. Please store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight for maximum longevity.
